Carlos’s Tip #271: Carlos Dinares is doing a Rowing Camp at Potomac Boat Club in Washington D.C

Carlos Dinares Sculling camp: October 8-10, 2011

The plan is to have a maximum of 7 boats on the water at once (1 quad,
2 doubles, 4 singles). The schedule each day (Saturday through Monday)
will run from 8 AM until 2:30 PM. Each morning will begin with an introduction
where Carlos will discuss the focus for the day. Video and RP3 sessions will
be used to set specific targets for each person. It is expected there will
be an evolution and progression of goals throughout the 3 day camp.

The daily plan is as follows:

8:00 – 8:30 Daily introduction
8:30 – 10:00 On the water (video)
10:00 – 12:00 RP3 (erg) session, video review, lunch
12:00 – 1:30 On the water
1:30 – 2:30 RP3, review, discussion

The first on-water session will primarily be devoted to video, to establish
where everyone is at. The morning RP3/video review session will be used to
highlight specific aspects to focus on for each individual. The purpose of
the afternoon on-water session of the day is to make that change! And the
last session of each day will evaluate progress.

A sampling of topics that will be discussed:

Organization of movement and sequence of the stroke
Power curve, peak force position, and length of stroke
Arrival atthe stern, placement and loading of the blade
Drive and recovery phase
Boats ad blade skill
Athleticism, strength and coordination as related to efficient rowing
Awareness of key things to continue enjoying the sport of rowing late into life
Differences in training for sprint racing and head racing
Differences in approach for single sculling and team boats
